    Cheney Is Linked to C.I.A. Concealment of Terror Program

    (  By New York Times, Asnycnow15)
    CIA_seal.jpg The Central Intelligence Agency withheld information about a
    secret counterterrorism program from Congress for eight years
    on direct orders from former Vice President Dick Cheney, the
    agency's director, Leon E. Panetta, has told the Senate and
    House intelligence committees, two people with direct
    knowledge of the matter said Saturday.

    The report that Mr. Cheney was behind the decision to conceal
    the still-unidentified program from Congress deepened the
    mystery surrounding it, suggesting that the Bush
    administration had put a high priority on the program and its
    secrecy.

    Mr. Panetta, who ended the program when he first learned of
    its existence from subordinates on June 23, briefed the two
    intelligence committees about it in separate closed sessions
    the next day.
